CALL FOR ENTRIES! - Night of the Exquisite Corpse


Awesome artists Adam Hoppus and Chris Schons have cooked up a great new collaborative show and I'd love to extend the invitation to you to participate!

Night of the Exquisite Corpse is a 50 artist collaborative exhibition and project that will be featured at Light Grey Art Lab in mid-August through Mid-September!

We're looking to feature the work of 50 designers and illustrators from around the globe. The theme of this show is the undead! Each artist / designer will be asked to modify (as much or as little as you wish) a 13 x 19" blank, fully-customizable die-line (consisting of 3 parts: a basic head, torso and legs). The finished, customized pieces will be assembled into approximately 7" tall figures, exhibited and sold at our brick and mortar gallery in Minneapolis as well as in our online shop. We will also be creating a gallery online to showcase all 50 pieces for paper toy / paper craft admirers (of course, suited with links to your personal site/ blog). The die line is created in a way that allows for individuals to assemble and swap body parts with any other creature in the show. We're excited about this interactive art piece as a whole and would love to count you in!

If you are interested in participating, please leave a comment below with a link to your website or online portfolio and Adam and Chris will reach out to the lucky 50 participants with more information!
Since we're capping the amount of people at 50, we know a lot of talented, awesome people may not be able to make it this time -- but rest assured that we'll be posting more great calls for entries soon! Show us what you've got and we're excited to see your work!

If you know someone that might be interested, pass it along! We'd love for as many people as possible to be able to enter!
Thanks, in advance, and we're looking forward to making art with you!

Please comment by Sunday, June 10 if you'd like to be involved! We know that's soon, so hurry and let us know if you're interested!
